JACOME, Diego, Portuguese missionary, born in Portugal early in the 16th century; died in Brazil in 1565. He entered the Jesuit order in 1548, and went to Brazil to preach the gospel to the natives. When the plague broke out in Espirito Santo, he devoted himself to the care of the sick, and contracted the disease of which he died. He wrote "Carta escripa do Brazil em 1551, em que trata dos costumes dos Indios, e trabalhos, que os PP. da companhia padecem na sua conversao." The original is preserved in the convent of St. Roch, Lisbon. It was translated into Italian (Venice, 1559).
